Book your British Airways flights to Khartoum.
Flights to Khartoum (KRT) from London Heathrow (LHR) land you at the essential entry point to Sudan. Located close to the city in Al-Amarat, a taxi will cost between SDG 5 and 15 (£1.50 - £4.50) to anywhere in the city. Minibuses are available on the main road, just 200m from the airport terminal.
For a culinary experience to remember eat at Kandahar, in the Souq Libya. Select the meat that you want to eat, then hand to the chef to be prepared while you watch. While visiting, travel west along Nile Street from the Presidential Palace for about 4km to view the confluence of the Blue and White Nile (known locally as Al-Mogran). Local legend states that you can actually see the two colours come together and flow separately before they merge together, forming the Nile.
For a taste of real Khartoum, head straight for the bustling Souq Arabi. This fascinating Arabian market, just south of the Great Mosque (Mesjid al-Kabir), sells everything you could think of and is the best place to buy gold. It's a great place to people-watch; where locals meet and go about their everyday lives. Do visit the Sufi dancing which takes place at the Ghobba al-Hamed al-Nil every Friday at 4pm. This vibrant and exciting celebration must be seen, just make sure you take your camera.
